Lasemby's store which was later owned by Mr. Bryant, father of Bonnie Bryant. The store sold penny candy and canned goods. The canned goods were behind the counter and patrons would come in and ask the proprietor to fill their order. There was a big Coca-Cola box and the store also had a meat counter in the back where a butcher worked and cut meat to sell.
The store wouldn't have been regarded as part of Bedford because it was closer to the Suck Spring and Sedalia areas.
